Menu Plan Monday ~ Help has Arrived!

As I type dh is on his way to the airport to pick up my mom. It would be fitting to have her plan the menu, but since I already purchased most of our food for the month I’ll have to wait until April for her to start menu planning. I finally broke down this week and had dh purchase some convenience foods to help my 14 yo with meals. This bed rest thing is no fun, but the kids are doing a great job of pitching in and helping out! Maybe my mom will be bit by the blogging bug and start taking pictures of everything she makes while she is here!

  1. I know it will be a relief to have your mom there!

  2. Take care of yourself! It’s so nice to have helpful family. Good luck 🙂

  3. Aren’t Moms the best??? I’m glad she was able to come into town to help out. Take care

  4. how wonderful your mom can come and help you out. sounds like you are organized which if i was your mom i would appreciate. i was on bed rest for 3 weeks and it was a total drag, but necessary. God bless you!

  5. Yes, moms are the best!!! Too funny, I carry my camera with me everywhere now. I have the most random pictures ever.
    I think the only time my house was ever consistantly clean was when my mom and then my mother in law each took a week or so take care of me and baby the first go round.
    Moms ROCK!!

  6. That pizza looks amazing!!!!


  7. Bed rest is the pits, but having your mom come in is a life saver! By the way, your salmon turnovers look to die for. Seriously, YUM!

  8. Your site looks interesting – I’m a homeschooling, home-cooking mum too (in Australia). I would LOVE to have some venison steak – my family’s from Texas – we don’t get too much venison over here! Kangaroo now and then, but venison only at restaurants! 🙂 God bless and rest up.

  9. Knowing your mom…I’m sure you won’t have to do a darn thing while she is there except rest and help that little baby grow! Enjoy the time with her!

  10. I’m so glad that your mom is able to come! I know that will be such a big help.
    God bless,

  11. I am glad your help has arrived! I hate that you are having to be on bed rest. I hope you’re not getting too bored or uncomfortable.

  12. Please pass the pizza! YUM!

  13. I made the chicken legs for dinner tonight and I thought they were great.
